Pillowcase Halter Dress by AKsunshine

Cut out the dress. After I cut the arm holes, I cut the back so that it
was about 1.5 " above the lowest part of the holes. I folded this over
and made a casing just wide enough for my elastic, also making it at
the same level now as the lowest part of the holes. I cut the elastic
about as wide as the outside of her shoulder blades, knowing it
would sit lower and not need to be as wide as say half way around
her rib cage. I stitched the edges of the casing and elastic together
really well. Then I made a 1" casing on the front and pulled through
coordinating ribbon. I used grosgrain, 1.5".
